A story of loss, survival, and legacy, The Girl and The Picture conveys the impact of memory on future generations. In 1937, 8-year-old Xia Shuqin witnessed the murder of her family in the horror that would become known as the Nanjing Massacre. In the days that followed, an American missionary took a photo of Shuqin with her surviving sister in the ruins of their family home.
